Re: XML file format - Linux vs Windows

Works perfectly!

Unfortunately, this has to be done per-user.  I'd like to suggest that
perhaps if the user chooses to save their files as uncompressed XML, that
Dia turn this option on automatically.  Thoughts?

This makes sense.
And the different fonts and resulting bounding box size mismatches
aren't producing irrelevant changes ?

I don't want to talk about fonts... :-<   (Courier seems to work ok :-/)

As for the bounding boxes - I had noticed they changed a lot, and presumed
they must be tied to screen resolution or something...  Getting them the
same would be great...

They are a lot influenced by the screen resolution and the font renderer's
idea of the rendered width of a given string. There is little we can do

see above. The real approach would be a graphical diff
based on dia's interpretation of two xml files - wouldn't it ?
[Don't get me wrong, I don't plan to write such]

That'd be cool  (but wasn't what I was meaning)
The reason for minimizing the diffs is twofold:
- Keeping the files as small as possible, by storing incremental diffs
- Using that fact (and XML buzzwords) when showing PHB the benefits of dia
  (Using tkcvs/tkdiff to visually show someone the incremental changes
  seems to be a really, really effective selling point when trying to
  convince them to change to dia...)

Really ?
